Liam,
Maybe it was the use of a strong word like Buzzkill, that made me have the reaction I did. I saw a list of 20 or so songs and then you mentioned that you were less than halfway through the alphabet!! I can think of very few shows that did not feature at least 6-8 of the songs you mentioned, let alone the ones you didn't.

As for the whole Love/Kindness thing, I believe that was in many ways a myth. While I had many great experiences with strangers on tour, I also had my share of bad trips withe strangers. There was always an element that would rip you off, or as we said, they would sell their Grandmother just to get to the next show. Certainly the people you chose as friends in the scene were great, honest and kind people, so were my Tour friends. However, I met a lot of shady characters, and scumbags on tour as well. I once had 5 sets of Red Rocks '85 tickets stolen from my bedroom by a "friend of a friend", whom we had extended some true "deadhead" hospitality ( place to stay, food and mind alterations) to and we had to scrounge for tickets the day before the shows after flying in from the texas/OKC shows.

man that sucks about being ripped off. At least you made it though, that'd be even worse. Wish I could have seen them at the Rocks. Hope the thief caught some Karma

Purple - dont coddle - it is unbecoming a good a poster as you are - as for me - i'm an ass so i can be vitriolic and assoholic - (damn, i gott lay off the brew for the rest of the night) - lol

If Liam cant handle Bobby songs - he can go listen to Justin Timberlake or Julio Inglesias (sp) - maybe they are more his speed - Bobby is rock and roll in my opinion - he may have sucked at times, but so did Jerry, Brent and the rest. Holy crap - it is a JAM BAND!!!!! it didnt always work
